We believe in Immunizations!

Why we feel strongly about Immunizations…

We have all provided pediatric care to children for over twenty years each. We have seen tremendous changes over our careers, the majority of which have been from advances in immunizations. We have personally seen many illnesses disappear; Diseases that we have seen children die from, like meningitis and epiglottitis.

There is a huge amount of scientific evidence that your child is safer getting vaccinated than to deny your child this protection.

Here are the most important parts of our policy:

  • If you do not immunize your child, we will ask you to find another provider. We will not assist you in putting your child at risk for vaccine-preventable illnesses.
  • We will not let you make up your own schedule, or do them one at a time. There is no evidence this is safer, and the delay puts your child at risk at the most risky time of their lives.
  • We do not want unimmunized children in our office or waiting room. It will put our other patients at risk.
